Timing of Council and Committee Meetings Survey pdf icon PDF 100 KB

To report back to the committee the results of the recent survey.

Decision:

(a)       That the Committee acknowledges the results of the survey detailed in the report and recommends to the Council that there be no change in our arrangements for the times and frequency for holding meetings for the life of the Council; and

 

(b)       That the practice of holding a four week recess from scheduled meetings during the month of August be confirmed for 2016.

 

Minutes:

The Member Engagement Manager introduced a report on the timing of Council and Committee Meetings survey.  He referred to the survey which had been undertaken amongst elected and co-opted members of the Council to determine their preferences for when formal meetings should be held.  He advised that there was a significant majority in favour of not making changes to the current approach and therefore the recommendation was that a mixture of morning and afternoon meetings continued to be held with a four week recess during the month of August for the life of this Council.  The Member Engagement Manger reported on the results of the survey which were detailed in the report.   

 

Councillor Alex Aldridge expressed thanks to Officers for the opportunity given to Members to express their views on the timing of meetings.  He expressed concerns around Members’ attendance at Council meetings if  the Welsh Government was to proceed with reorganisation of local authorities in Wales.  

 

RESOLVED:

 

(a)       That the Committee acknowledges the results of the survey detailed in the report and recommends to the Council that there be no change in our arrangements for the times and frequency for holding meetings for the life of the Council; and

 

(b)       That the practice of holding a four week recess from scheduled meetings during the month of August be confirmed for 2016.
